    my possible first tacoma, might buy it next week:

    2007 doublecab 4x4 TRD SR5, automatic
    silver, grey interior, 5 disk changer
    tow package
    tinted windows
    custom grille
    61000 miles
    looks really good, the guy was a smoker, so there's a slight smoke smell, and a small burn mark in the back seat.
    also the overhead console needs repaired, there's a rock chip in the windshield, and some minor exterior paint chips, normal for that mileage i'd say. the carfax is clean, one small accident, someone backed into the door, which was repaired and they were honest about. the carfax didn't show any routine maintenance records though, which maybe he just did himself?

    i got him down to $19500, it is a nice truck, the test drive felt good and i'm going to have my garage go over it before i hand over the cash. any advice, really any comments would be appreciated, thanks all! here is a pic:

    If you have your guy check it out and he says that it's good then go for it. It looks great.

    19k for an 07 with 61,xxx miles is still kinda high IMO

    anything in particular i should look for in a truck with this mileage? oh, also, it has the extended warranty for 80,000 miles, so that sweetens the deal, plus no sales tax in GA! thanks all for the advise, i hope it works out. does anyone know if that overhead console is covered under the warranty, or how expensive it would be to repair? thanks again.

    To High, I would say it is worth 17,500. You can get a better deal imo.
